Blogs are starting to appear on what the SONA means for us, and the dust is settling and people are starting to think things through what the President said.
Our regular Pro Pinoy contributors gave their two cents. Manuel Buencamino wrote SONA, and it was followed by Felicity’s “A delayed reaction to the theif who stole in the night.” Marocharim tweeted his take in what is appropriately titled, “the 140 character SONA.”
Caffeinesparks gave her thoughts in “Noynoy’s first SONA: reiterating the message of his campaign.” She scrawled, “this SONA sounds like a report to the people.”
Regular Pro Pinoy writer, Doy Santos on the other hand had a good piece on “Son of a SONA!” In it he criticized the administration’s choice of Public-Private Partnerships in developing nations. It is a must read.
Leo Alejandrino lent his insight in “Noy’s State of the Nation.” He said, “by my count the weighted grade for the SONA was a B+ for sincerity and goodwill. It could have done with more content especially on fiscal reform. Next year’s test will be harder. The President will no longer have the past Administration to hit on. He will also have to deliver on his promises. Let us wish him luck.”
Loyal Aquino supporter Reyna Elena jot down his thoughts in a reaction to President Benigno Aquino’s State of the Nation Address.
The Anti-Pinoy Ilda’s take on President Noynoy’s SONA: what the clapping audience failed to hear,” apparently the President is the ‘biggest loser.’ Of course, it hasn’t dawned on that camp that calling people names simply translates to losing an argument.
The opposition continues to oppose everything and proposing nothing.
Most people general accept the SONA in a positive light. Yes there are misgivings and some obvious disappointment, but generally are willing to give the President the benefit of the doubt and this time to act. In their critic you can sense that they do want to make things better loving their country and willing to change it.
